Tim Robinson

A riddle from Tim Robinson's Connemara: Listening to the Wind, a book I've been reading slowly, lingeringly:

Téann sé isteach ar ghuaillí daoine agus tagann sé amach ina shnáithín síoda – ‘It comes in on people’s shoulders and it goes out as a thread of silk.’

SNOT comes in on people's shoulders?

John, where have you been hanging out

In some long, hankyless queue
where everyone behind you
has the flu?
